#190: James Clear – Atomic Habits
“Disruption,” as a word, has always had an explosive sound to me. Disruption causes your world to shift and change—an earthquake in the making. However, every once in a while, I’m reminded that disruption does not have to be earth shattering. Sometimes, the smallest changes can have a long-lasting impact on your life, especially when those changes become habits.
Our guest this episode is James Clear author of the New York Times bestseller, Atomic Habits, An Easy and Proven Way to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones. James advocates that the way to build habits is to try and get just one percent better each day—something that sounds almost too easy to do, and yet builds a firm foundation for continual improvement.
In this episode we learn practical and manageable tips for improvement…
* Habits are the “compound interest of self-improvement”.
* The two-minute rule – be wary of going big.
* Point and call, an audible habit builder.
* Implementation intentions; be specific!
* Track your habit – seeing is believing.
* Repetition is a form of change.
* Never miss twice.
